I installed two double GFCI outlets in the same box coming off the same hot and nuetral. only the first one works down the line(daisy chained). I've replaced the second one with a new one thinking it was defective, but the new one don't work either. Is this not possible? Please advise....thanks much for taking the time.
A second *regular* outlet (not GFI) can be wired to the "load" terminals of an upstream GFI in your case. A nice diagram (url is too long) can be found by Googling "Wiring GFI" and it's the first site.
If you wire the 2 GFI's in parallel, not daisy chained it woudl work, since it's the same as having 2 GFI's in separate locations off the same hot.

OK. I'm not one of those people that are against homeowners dabbling in electrical work, but if you are asking these basic questions, I would think twice about doing this yourself. Do yourself a favor, and buy a decent book and read it from beginning to end so you can familiarize yourself with the proper way of doing basic electrical tasks. A good book is Tauntons "Wiring Complete". Don't play around with electricity. Take this seriously.
